      I think men are universally perverted it s just that in Japan we do something about it I fall in love for forty minutes and then go home sex club customers quoted in Pink Box This unique book, wrapped in a pink translucent vinyl dustjacket, is probably the closest that most foreigners will ever get to most of the action in Tokyo s carnivalesque, but very closed, sexual commercial enterprises That s because, as the book explains, the ritualized aspects of the fantasies that play out in these mult [...]

      One of my greatest turn ons is sexual variance, especially when it s commercialized into a menu of different sexual services and locations I had the biggest sexual taxonomy boner flipping through this fabulous book Lots of close ups of brothel menus featuring anything from eyeglasses to infinity shape breast service It even has a spoiler alert glossary Excuse me, I need some time alone.

    3. okyrhoe on said:

      I don t know whether to laugh or be upset with the content of this book At times the artificially exaggerated innocence of the prostitution and porn industries seems just too weird to be true The photo journalism documentation tries not to judge this type of commerce, but in the end its very structured codes of conduct means only one thing it is a deeply entrenched part of the social fabric of Japan.

    4. Jim Dooley on said:

      I think it is safe to say that no one does Excess the way it is done in Japan It is almost as if the culture, with a history of self repression, occasionally blows a valve to let off steam and that letting off steam may very well become a new facet of the culture.The writer photographer, Joan Sinclair, has accomplished something amazing Although the commercial sex industry was the number 2 profit center at the time of this book s creation with automobile manufacturing coming in at number 1 , it [...]

      Interesting I ve always been interested in Japanese culture, fueled by watching anime during my formative years, and by the people I met during college my org catered to foreign students specifically, taking them on tours around the country, teaching them English, etc and random things my friends and I would find on the internet Once, a friend and I stumbled on pictures of themed Love Hotels in Japan and were amazed at the intricate and detailed rooms Hello Kitty themed, Christmas themed, SM, o [...]

    6. Marissa on said:

      Absolutely beautiful photography I love the glimpses into the sex clubs of Japan.

    7. Erin on said:

      I wasn t surprised by most of what is contained in this book, but I very much enjoyed it for the beautiful and fascinating photographs.

    8. Eric Mesa on said:

      I got this book for two reasons I ve been into Japanese culture since I was 14 and I m into photography In this book western photographer Joan Sinclair got a rare look at Japan s sex clubs to which foreigners are usually forbidden access The book is organized into a a section of text describing a certain type of Pink Box club and then a series of photos illustrating While this book obviously contains nudity it does not contain any sex The contrast to what we do in the West is pretty stark While [...]

    9. Heather on said:

      I love cities that are paradoxes In the case of Japan it is an entire country Prostitution is illegal in Japan, which is what makes their entire fuzoku industry immensely fascinating Mainly because it is well structured, with lots of rules and specificity on respect and control of desire, and the array of different desire scenarios is dizzying This is not like America s prostitution, where so many women are coerced and addicts doing things against their will or better clear judgement I m not sa [...]

    10. Alia on said:

      This is a quick read there isn t a lot of reading anyway 90% of this book is made up of the photographs that Joan Sinclair took if you want some information about Japan Sex Clubs I just wish there was information in the book about the different types of clubs I also like how Joan Sinclair says this at the end of the book All I ask is that viewers not assume that this profession is inherently degrading It s complicated than that These women are not powerless, they are not on drugs They have mad [...]

    11. April-Jane Rowan on said:

      It s not easy for a Westerner to get inside many of Japan s sex clubs so this book provides many with a taste of an infamous subject The photos are varied, showing workers and client alike in different settings It takes you through love hotels, host clubs and many other aspects of Japan s sex industry For the most part it lets you make up your mind on the subject, testimonies from clients and women sprinkled throughout One thing I ve always found alluring about this subject is the sheer amount o [...]

    12. Don on said:

      I have often thought that it would be great to be Japanese you could do practically anything you wished to do and people would just shake their heads and say Ah, but he s Japanese They re crazy, its their oppressive society that does it or words to that effect I believe that this book should be sufficient proof of the value of my sentiment Where else would sufficient people want to have kinky sex in an SM themed room that it would be economically feasible to offer such a place Or get into tiny t [...]

    13. Laura on said:

      I ve read a lot about the Japanese sex trade in fiction it sounded too wild and accessible to be true But no this is almost like The Ignorant Gaijin s Illustrated Guide To Ryu Murakami s In The Miso Soup I loved the photographer s take on these businesses and their employees, and while I m possibly even fascinated and curious than I was before, some of my curiosity is certainly sated in a way _

    14. Jennifer on said:

      The description of this book intrigued me enough to buy it and I was not disappointed The photos are vivid, the details included are fascinated and I was relieved to read at the end that these girls are not forced into sex work The author asks for them and their work to be respected I would greatly like to read another book that has details about sex work in Japan, but for a beginners read the photographs are spectacular Highly recommend.

    15. Sarah Crawford on said:

      Japan has a much different attitude towards sex that does the United States, and there are various hotels and clubs in Japan where a person can have sex with a girlfriend, or with a paid partner This book contains lots of photographs of such clubs, and the photos are definitely for a mature audience only The book is quite interesting on various levels.

    16. Jon(athan) Nakapalau on said:

      Young women working in sex clubs are photographed and interviewed They reveal their motivation for working in the sex industry and who they cater to in differing thematic clubs WARNING some photos are very graphic.

    17. Deodand on said:

      I bought this book for a friend and wound up enjoying it myself No, not like that was the logistics of the clubs that I found interesting Everything is very proscribed You re there to do what you do, but don t step off the path or you re out.

    18. Shawn on said:

      I thought this was going to be a indepth study of Japan s water industry or an intricate look at least It wasn t very intricate, but it was full of photographs Not exactly the book you would leave on the coffee table at home though.

    19. Jonathan on said:

      Pink Box is basically a coffee table book with tons of photographs of Japanese Sex Clubs There are few books that delve into this topic, and I find this to be one of the best There is a lot of interesting stuff in here, to be sure.

    20. Joe on said:

      Fascinating We men might think it, but the Japanese do it Not saying it s right or wrong, but it feels like a science fiction book than the explicit pictorial documentary that it is Worth getting than not.

    21. Alvaro on said:

      Far, far than just the table book that so many think it to be Quite an achievement of photo journalism.

    22. Bookish-Misanthrope on said:

      Great book with tasteful photography, it made me wish I were a Japanese man.

    23. Christie on said:

      I had always found this pictorial book extremely fascinating We used to sell it at the bookstore where I worked, but had to keep it behind the counter for obvious reasons ah, the curious young minds mostly male in origin s So I never got to look though it and appreciate the context of the work I came across it again a few months ago, put it on my wish list and purchased it.While the subject might be salacious in nature, it is ambiguously sexual Meaning yes, it is explicit, but not pornographic p [...]

    24. Emily Kramer on said:

      I dunno, somehow this book just gets me going It s like here close your eyes and imagine if you could fill one room with your fantasy What would be in there And then you turn the pages and can see what japanese men came up with on their own free time It s not porn though It s focused on the props, the costumes and the colors than on what happens between the people.Maybe that s why it s fun and not disturbing.Plus, the photographer is a woman left her husband home in america while she took off t [...]
